New Doll for Sale – The Princess and the Frog.
Please allow me to introduce my brand new piece: The Princess and the Frog!
A spoiled princess Arabelle learns a lesson in keeping promises and finding true love after meeting and reluctantly befriending a Poison Dart frog, who challenges her self-centered world views and becomes her handsome prince. And she becomes a better person.
Based on the Grimm Brothers fairy tale “The Frog Prince”.
Materials and construction:
A porcelain doll with a one of a kind engraving and a limited edition head ornament customized with one of a kind accents.
Conical headdress carved in wax, cast in bronze, plated with 24k gold, enameled and set with 15 faceted blue Topazes and 5 pearls. Pendant is a blue Topaz in 18k gold setting with a 24k gold plated chain. Tattoo of a Poison Dart frog is a combination of engraving on porcelain and china-painting. Veil is soft bridal chiffon, set with 300 Austrian crystals. Doll is ball-jointed, china-painted porcelain, lined with leather and strung with 11 steel springs. Wig is removable, magnetic mohair fiber, permanently-styled into 15 braids.
After months in construction, I’m crazy about how it had turned out!
